6 reasons why women drive trucks; which apply to you?

Modern Venus, which calls itself “a blog for millennial women”, has a recent sponsored post titled “Why Women Enter the Truck Driving Industry.” Then it offers six reasons, including:

  • Great money
  • Freedom of the road
  • The truck doesn’t care how strong you are
  • Trucking is a lifestyle
  • A great way to save money
  • Meeting great people

The piece concludes with, “Truck driving is not for everyone. However, those who feel the call to experience the joy of the open road should seize the opportunity. Driving a big rig is a great way to make a living. It is a lot of fun and a lot of hard work.”

Why did you start driving a truck for a living? Any of these reasons? Others? Is it a lot of fun?
